While I definitly wouln't plan on using the camera for my serious picture taking, I can see several compeling uses, some of them very nice answers to problems presented in this forum.
Want those conference handouts on you iPad. Picture it, pdf it, annotate it. And eventually, maybe even OCR it. Dare I venture FAX it, for those old school companies.
Book, CD, or DVD library. Scan the bar code for quick entry.
Inventory, a picture of the item would be nice, or maybe even the shelf you stuffed it on.
Video notes would be a terrific addtion to EverNote, don't you think? And if they don't do it, someone else will. And iMovie would be a pretty good way to clean them up for addtion to a presentation later. I wonder if you could export the iMovie to iTunes and then add it to a Keynote presentation?
While Garage Band is mostly for musicians, I wonder what you could do with the abiltiy to import, splice, and multitrack audio notes?
Ok, enough. My imagination is running wild. I knew I'd get it if it had the two things I wanted, a camera and a significant speed bump, but I didn't think they could get me excited again. It's mostly the potential for the apps that has me spinning. Guess I'm just easy.

Good points, feeling the same way! App potential is sky high now!

And realize that its using a dumpy Adreno 220 GPU. The iPad2 has a monster of a GPU in it. I know because my phone runs the version just below what the iPad 2 has. Games will far surpass what that tablet is shown doing.
I like that it's thinner.
As for reasons to upgrade, I cannot see one for me right now (from the tech specs point of view).
What turns me off is the tapered edges. I don't like the buttons positioned in tapered edges (like on my iPod). I also find it easier to attach the dock connector to my iPad rather than my iPod, which is due to the edges.
I'd love to see an iPad 3 with the design of the iPhone 4. I just love boxy designs.
I think it is as the truism goes: there's just no way to please everyone. To me, Apple have done what they've done with it, trying to reach as broad a consumer base as they can. It amazes me sometimes the way some users seem to take it so... personally.

Fate is not by CHANCE but by CHOICE.
I love the new iPad 2's new features.
2x the speed. Win.
9x the graphics. Super Win.
The rest is just gravy. HD video camera with iMovie. I'll take it! FaceTime camera in the front. Even better.
And they made it lighter and thinner, with a better speaker.. What's there not to like?!
iPad wifi + 3G w/Clear 4G iSpot
iPad 2 wifi black w/Tan Smart Cover
Next up.. iPhone 5!
I guess because I'm already quite satisfied with what I have. There will *always* be something else out there cooler, newer, faster. I am happy for owners of the iPad 2 because they will have an amazing device, but as a user of the original iPad I am just as content.
